— Ace As I usually forget about these and Genghis aka Jenjhis always remembers, I've asked him to step in as the official Overnight Editor for overnight threads.
I'll ask if he's cool with giving his email out in case you have a tip or suggestion, or want to open blog an overnight thread yourself. I'm sure he doesn't feel like doing it every night.
So, welcome to Jenjhis.
Here's a topic. What the hell is wrong with Dianne Sawyer?
And here's another one: What the hell is wrong with the NFL?
Bonus: Superman co-creator Joe Schuster had some odd jobs along the way. One of them -- illustrating sex/fetish comics.
Lifted from David Thompson's always-interesting compilation of odd-ends from around the internet. Check out the tilt-shift photography link there especially.
In all fairness, I sounded that drunk on election night. And inaguaration night. And probably will for quite a few nights in the next 4 years. Obama is the best thing that ever happened to Budweiser.

Re: The (possible) D-bags at the NFL, I sent them this message:
Im sure that I am not the first to send this comment, but I just heard that you (the NFL) will not be allowing our military color guard to watch this years Super Bowl in Tampa Bay. I have been debating whether or not to watch the game this year because it is on NBC and I absolutely despise Keith Olbermann, and I think this completely stupid decision (assuming this is true) to not allow my fellow servicemen to watch the game has made my debate much easier. I guess I will just watch some UFC or hockey instead. I would respectfully ask that you rectify this situation (again, if true) immediately, and allow my fellow servicemen to watch the game after presenting our nations colors.

Okay, not in my book. But in the left's book. And we can't let them forget that.
-Let's leave torture and other forms of coercive interrogation out of this. Let's assume that Obama has banned those practices.
-Interrogations aside, the left has constantly told us that merely holding prisoners in Gitmo, in little chain-link pens, isolated from each other, is a war crime.
-Obama has signed an executive order that will close Gitmo within a year, but does nothing to change the basic conditions there.
-Obama is therefore continuing the Bush's administration's basic practices at Gitmo
-Obama could, if he wanted to, immediately order that these detainees be put up in swanky housing, or at least held under conditions that would fall within the letter of the Geneva Conventions.
-Obama, therefore, is operating in violation of the Geneva Conventions, and thus is a WAR CRIMINAL.

Here's my real question with the NFL thing.... are they also kicking out the ridiculous bands that play at halftime, and the other extraneous folk that do all that silly shit in the pre-game ?
And for the record, I don't watch Super Bowls usually, for three reasons:
1. God considers it a sin for professional football to be played in February.
2. It's not football. It's 60 minutes of sport wrapped in 2 weeks of commerce. (stealing a line from George Will there)
3. Football is supposed to be played outside, on grass, at all times. If it snows, rains, sleets, is cold, tough titty, lil' kitty. Rotate the games through the cities, and let the fat-cat corporate sponsors live with it. Best thing about playing it in Tampa ? Potential tsunami and/or freak hurricane. (sorry Gulf Coast, but I gotta have standards)

Not necessarily. Just need to get some cracks in the wall of Dem party unity. Let the libtards' natural orthodoxy and paranoia do the rest. Like what happened to Lieberman, but on a smaller scale. Either way, we need to gain the initiative. Get them reacting to US for a change.

The NFL is, if this gets out, making a grave mistake.
I'm sure that every celebtard who performs will be given complimentary luxury box tickets, we'll see plenty of cameo crowd shots of them. I wonder how Springsteen will look in his luxury box while he's caring for the working man.

28 That's a losing proposition, kda, you'll never match the fringe left in dedication, numbers, activism or most importantly, fundraising.
If the economy stays in the crapper, and a few more Madoffs pop up, there might not be the cornucopia of fundraising they've enjoyed these last few years.
There are plenty of people who vote Dem who aren't unwashed moonbats, they seem to resemble and talk like normal people until the subject of Bush or Obama is brought up. There are Dems who don't like rap music, softcore porn on tv, don't think kindergarteners should be taught how to use a dental dam, etc.
Posted by: kbdabear at January 22, 2009 09:48 PM (4gHqM)
Robert Wuhl (no conservative, he) had the best lines about Springsteen and liberalism a few decades ago. The state song of New Jersey is (or was) Born to Run, by Bruce. And it includes the lines "Baby this town breaks the bones of your back, it's a death trap, it's a suicide rap, we gotta get out while we're young...."
Dumbass liberals thought that was a good song for what ? State pride ? Tourism ? No, like all liberal politicians they got on their knees and sucked every drop of celebrity wannabe-ism they could from anyone "pretty" they could find.

Some of these numbers may be the ticket office. Kindly ask them for the business number. Ask for the owner, you probably wont get them but be polite with the person youre talking to huge public relations mistake.
While your at it, please notify your Congressman and Senators. If you do that let the NFL teams your calling know that also.

Sure they'll come up with a total bullshit excuse along with all the ways they'll tell you that "nobody honors the troops more than the NFL" . This is NBC running the telecast this year, perhaps it upsets Keefums to see those Bush loving Marines out there watching the game. Or maybe they're taking up space the camera crews need to bring celebrity in the crowd shots to the viewers.
Posted by: kbdabear at January 22, 2009 11:14 PM (miw86)
I guess with NBC doing the Super Bowl they will find ways to work in Krissy Matthews and The Olberdouchenozzle, and they will find a way to get President Asshat involved as well.
But I got that beat. I work nights and sleep days; I will be asleep while my DVR records the Super Bowl. I wake up at midnight, unaware of the outcome, watch it on replay- and can fast forward thru everything that isn't football.

They're doing this in the hopes that the troops will say "Screw this" and refuse to show the colors, thus relieving them of the uncomfortable tradition of displaying any patriotism.
Boy, they must not know (lol) or understand our troops, volunteers who will risk life and limb at a simple order from their superiors. Gross oversimplification aside, a message to Garcia springs to mind.
*IF* this is true - and that's big if, having been suckered in by many intarwebs rumors before - this is true, then fuck the NFL. Seriously. Fuck 'em long and hard. When they figger out that most of their die hard supporters are those nasty beer-swilling redneck Red Staters, money will make them shut up, but they won't mean it.

What's this Barry is restricting access to his loving minions?
NEW YORK (AP) - News organizations that cover the White House sparred with the Obama administration on Thursday over access issues for photographers and rules for briefings.
"We're in an awkward phase and there will be bumps in the road," said Christopher Isham, CBS News Washington bureau chief. "Hopefully they will be speed bumps rather than obstacles."
It's a good thing our unbiased press has no problems with it. I'm sure they are just happy to be so close to their messiah.

Get Pink to sing the theme song, considering most of the audience doesn't know who she is. Done. Put Olberwaffle on the air for his politics, which conveniently don't match those of your audience. Yep. You argue that's not the NFL, they just sold broadcast rights? Would you sell your daughter to a child molester? Now we'll kick out the Armed Forces while we're at war. Done.

And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration's lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.
Well, I guess there will not be any interrogations. Oh well, we expected Crater II and the shit has filled his regime (note using the same terminology they used for Bush) with ex-Clinton people. We can expect the Clinton war on terrorism, i.e. prosecute them in court, give them access to classified information, and let them go.

'No way, we need China to buy our bonds. If they stop, well then, it's everybody out of the pool and watch the world burn.'
Yeah, it'd be bad if they stopped buying our debt. We'd be bankrupt. America is the motor of the world and would grind to a halt. In less than a week it'd be a global economic meltdown.
In America, the Great Depression would look like a recession in comparison. Remember the pictures of Germans burning currency to keep warm? That is our future.
